The Elbe - 2006 and 2010

Photos from when the Elbe flooded in 2006 (not to be confused with the all-time record flood of 2002), preceded by photos from 2010 from the same spots. It was not trivial to align these shots taken 4 years apart and with different cameras. They should sit side-by-side if you expand your browser.

View from Albertbrücke looking West from the South side

Southeast corner of Albertbrücke, looking Northeast. I should have taken the non-flooded picture when the Flohmarkt (flea market) is there in full-effect.

Looking toward the Fährgarten biergarten. The entire biergarten was under water.

Looking East from the south bank. Notice the Waldschlößchenbrücke being assembled in the 2010 shot.
